How to restore and backup file associations?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

How do I backup file associations that are customized?  I would like to backup and restore my customization in default file locations.  Is there an option for this in my OS or do I need a third party application?  I have Windows 7 64 bit.  Thank you.

Hello, Nicholas!

I can help you with this. First, go to the Backup and Restore option from your PC. Here you can see the "manage option" and "change setting".

You can change the backup location and whatsoever you want. It's very easy and I trust you can do it. If still there is a problem, just come knocking. Thanks!
